BPA Credit to Bring Some Reliefby Staff
Capital Press, October 19, 2001
BOISE -- An agreement between the Bonneville Power Administration and Idaho Power Co. has resulted in a rate reduction for small-farm and residential customers.
Idaho Power Co. farm customers using 100,000 kilowatts per month, will see a reduction of about $300 per month, Idaho Public Utility Commission officials said in a press release.
Residential users who consume 1,200 kilowatts per month will see a reduction of about $3.60 per month.
The rate reductions are part of a negotiated settlement agreement among public utility commissions in Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Montana.
The Northwest Regional Power Act of 1980 established a residential and small-farm exchange program that required BPA to provide Northwest electric customers a share of the benefits from the federal hydroelectric projects located in the region.
